Since the beginning of the Food Bank’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in March of 2020, implementing strategies and adjusting operations for the long-term impact of the pandemic on the community we serve is a top priority.  The Food Bank is committed to serving those in need, and we’re very thankful for the trust that’s placed in us.

4 Ways To Help

The work to ensure no one goes hungry continues, and we are more resilient together. We need resources to continue so that we can enact the strategies we know work to end hunger. Here’s how you can help: 

Monetary donations allow us to stay nimble, to change our operation as needed, and reach new people with our efforts.  

I want to donate

Want to mobilize your neighborhood, church group, or other circle of friends? Holding a Virtual Food Drive is a great way to help – while practicing social distancing.

Involve Friends

Research the policies that impact hunger and speak out! Contact your state, local, and federal representatives to let them know policies like SNAP, TEFAP, and WIC need to be strengthened in order to break the cycle of hunger and help relieve families of the burden of hunger. Visit foodbankcenc.org/advocacy or feedingamericaaction.org to learn more.

Advocacy & Policy

The Food Bank greatly relies on our volunteers, especially in times of crisis. If you are a healthy adult and want to volunteer, you can self-schedule a shift at foodbankcenc.org/volunteer
